LANSING, Mich. (WILX) – Students from across Michigan are protesting against their schools’ COVID-19 vaccine mandates. Students from Michigan State, University of Michigan, Grand Valley State University, and other Michigan colleges took to the Capitol steps today saying they should not be forced into getting a vaccine to attend school.
MSU Student, PJ Serati, says today’s rally isn’t about getting the vaccine, it’s about forcing people into it.
“People should have the right to make that decision. A lot of our critics tell us hey you have the right to choose a different school, you have the right to quit your job, you have the right to go somewhere else, move to a different country. That is not the United States. The United States allows for the individual to benefit not the institution,” said Serati with Michigan Students Take Charge.
